Windows 7: Error after install

Error after install

Ok, so I went through the first part of the Windows 7 installation, then I had to restart. After I restart, it says something about updating the registry, sits there for like 10 minutes then a blue screen pops up. I didn't catch the error the first time but after restarting again, the same blue screen pops up, error 0x0f4, safe mode or not. Then there's this mini-dump thingy at the bottom that goes to 100, then the blue screen goes and the computer restarts. Nothing ever works out perfectly for me .

Anyone can help?

Thanks!

What installation method are you using there? dvd, usb key, mounted iso image? If burned to disk you may have a frisbee to toss if the burn was bad like something not fully being written to the disk itself. You may have run into a bad blank disk?

Another thing that hamper installing any version of Windows would be any problems seen with the memory installed on the system itself. A bad download, wrong program or bad install of that, bad disk, bad ram, even bad sectors on the hard drive from wear are things to consider.

It was off a USB key. I'm going to try and re-install now.

Hey. I got build 7260., Acer aspire 5601, 4gigs ram, integrated video, tried installing on about a 20-odd gig partition of a 80 gig hard drive. Not sure what BIOS version, I can F2 into BIOS. I ran the set-up again and tried the repair tool. Nothing was repaired but it said the problem was "failure while setup is in progress". The 0x0f4 error had i think 0x03 in the bracket to the right which means a process ended unexpectedly (versus a thread).

Hope that helps.

Thanks!

The "0x0f4" error often comes up with ide drives as well as virtual memory when data isn't correctly being swapped out to the drive like a set of bad sectors. Most of time the best move is starting with a totally fresh primary to work with as well as knowing the drive is in 100% good health along with the memory on the system.

Unfortunately with laptops you don't usually have a lot of options except downloading a diagnostics tool from the drive's own manufacturer if you know which one to run scans on it. As far anything "leaked" you have to be prepared for anything as a rule!

I got it working... not on that hard drive but another one. This thing is sweet! Thanks for the help, I guess it was a hard drive problem.

Ouch! They go at times however.

You may want to invest in a notebook cooling pad if you don't already have one since drives as well as the rest tend to run warmer in laptops/notebooks due to the confined space. At least now you can get the feel of the new Windows!

Yeh. I didn't just get this hard drive. Long story short, this is one of 2 drives I use with this laptop. I won't bother with a cooling pad for this, i'm ready to throw this at a wall. It wouldn't be my money, since technically it isn't my laptop, but its about time this laptop gets replaced anyway. The new Windows feels great! Not a bit of lag! Especially expected it with this new taskbar... only problem is I can't seem to get flash working...
